This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.

ACTIVITIES

At the beginning of the lesson, students briefly discuss if the issues mentioned in the article apply to the company they work for. After the warm-up, students read five statements regarding location-based pay and pay transparency. Their task is to first match the statements with the reasons behind them. Then, they need to make sure that they understand the expressions in bold in the statements (e.g. salary band, remuneration discrepancies). Next, students discuss which of the issues they agree with or relate to personally. Finally, they read four solutions to deal with location-based pay issues and put them in order of fairness for both the company and its employees.

Questions

Title separator

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro), GBP (British pound sterling) or PLN (Polish zloty). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
